Imagine Dragons – On Top Of The World lyrics

If you love somebody
Better tell them while they're here 'cause
They just may run away from you


You'll never know what went well
Then again it just depends on
How long of time is left for you


I've had the highest mountains
I've had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but life keeps moving

Now take it in but don't look down

'Cause I'm on top of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can

Been dreaming of this since a child
I'm on top of the world.

I've tried
to cut these corners
Tried to take the easy way out
I kept
on falling short of something

I coulda
gave up then but
Then again I couldn't have 'cause
I've traveled all this way for something
Now take
it in but don't look down

'Cause I'm
on top of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I'm on top of the world.

'Cause I'm on top
of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

And I know it's hard when you're falling down
And it's a long way up when you hit the ground
But get up now, get up, get up now

And I know it's hard when
you're falling down
And it's a long way up when you hit the ground
But get up now, get up, get up now

'Cause I'm on top of the
world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I'm on top of the world.
